The Pittsburgh Penguins recently announced the hiring of Terry Kalna to the position of Senior Vice President of Sales and Broadcasting. Kalna was recommended to the Penguins by Turnkey Search, which the team contracted to fill the position. Kalna joins the Penguins from International Speedway Corporation, where he served as Managing Director of Partnership Sales and Marketing since 2007.
Said Penguins CEO David Morehouse on an announcement about the hiring on the team’s official website, “Terry brings great experience and a unique business perspective from outside the hockey world, but he’s also a native western Pennsylvanian who is familiar with the marketplace.” He continued to say that Kalna “understands the importance of relationship-building and is well aware of the kinds of relationships we’ve built with our fans, our corporate partners and the community in general. We think he will be an excellent addition to the Penguins’ staff.”
